Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

When changing the oil to our 2002 Buick Rendezvous, my husband found bubbles in both front brake lines. We took the vehicle to bob myers Buick dealership in our home town of anderson, in and was told the service department inspected the brake system and found all rubber components damaged due to possible fluid contamination. They advised it would require replacement of all rubber components and complete system flush to prevent further damage. The estimate was quite expensive and we were advised this would not be under warranty. We took our vehicle then to dean's engine shop, anderson, in and had them do repair work. He advised on our paid receipt " checked for contaminated brake fluid, took master cly apart and checked, none found, possible defect in rubber hoses; replaced rubber lines at all 4 wheels replaced master cyl flushed out and blead total cost of $572.26 (repairs done 3-4-04) first inspection from bob myers Buick 2-25-04. We also had to pay for a rental vehicle while our vehicle was in for this repair 02-27-04 to 03-02-04.
